ReFirme is a non surgical treatment that reduces wrinkles and skin imperfections by using the revolutionary elos technique. The skin will be toned and softer after the ReFirme treatment. This anti aging treatment may have durable effects if the patient has a suitable lifestyle. The patient has to learn how to protect her skin and to identify possible factors that could contribute to the aging of the skin, so as to avoid these. Aging, weight variations, sun or other pollutants have a damaging effect on the skin.
After the ReFirme Treatment
The skin after the Refirme treatment may be more sensitive than usual, so the patient will be asked to get a sun protection cream with a higher protection factor than usual (i.e. SPF 30 or over). This cream should be worn for at least 2 weeks after the ReFirme treatment. Ideally, the sun must be avoided as much as possible to avoid sun burns.
Maximum Protection for Skin
The patient has to learn how to take care of her skin to avoid possible damaging factors such as:
- The sun
- Cigarette smoke
- Poor quality makeup
- Unsuitable skin products
The patient has to avoid sun, as this is one of the most damaging factors for the skin. The sun causes wrinkles and age spots. Sunscreen is essential and must be applied at all times. The patient should stay away from different pollutants that may also damage the skin. Smoking is not recommended, as this will cause the premature aging of the skin. The makeup used should be hydrating and clinically tested. Poor quality makeup may dry the skin or cause skin infections.
The skin products that are not suitable for the patient’s skin type may also cause skin dryness or damage the skin. The patient has to opt for products that are created for her skin type.
Diet and Skin Health
Diet plays an important role when it comes to skin health. An unsuitable diet can cause skin dryness, which will facilitate wrinkling. A balanced diet that is rich in vitamin E and omega 3 and 9 fatty acids will guarantee healthy skin. Supplements may also be recommended. Water is highly important to keep the skin hydrated.
Frequent weight variations can cause saggy skin and wrinkling, as the skin will lose its elasticity and the collagen production may be diminished. The patient should try to keep her weight constant and this can be achieved through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Refirme can have durable effects, but the duration of these effects may depend on some of the above mentioned factors and the age of the patient.
To preserve the effects of ReFirme, the patient may opt for additional non invasive procedures that will reduce wrinkles or prevent the formation of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, botulinum toxin injections or other laser treatments may be recommended.
